Asturias Hotel: Puerto Princesa's Princess Hotel

I do not normally travel with a lot of people, but this time of the year comes the tourism eductional tour schedules for the College of Saint Benilde of Manila. Together with almost 60 students, we decided to conquer the Philippine's Last Frontier.... Palawan.

Upon reaching Puerto Princesa via Cebu Pacific Airways, we were immediately transfered to our hotel - Asturias Hotel.

Located at the heart of bustling Puerto Princesa, the Asturias Hotel consists of 60 luxurious guestrooms that complement the warmth and friendly services that make you feel right at home. We were immediately given our keys (maybe because they knew we were hoteliers) or maybe, it was really just their usual hospitality practice.

The austere facade of the hotel was remarkably overturned by the interior design of the hotel. Rooms are suitably located in such a way that each room would have easy access to the pool which is located right at the center of the property.

Having stayed in this hotel made our educational tour a lot more fun and cognitively rewarding.

Venture ville: Cheap and musty

This is Puerto Princessa.
For 300 pesos a night what you get is: 2 beds a strong fan, a private bathroom, and a musty funk in the room. It's not a bed deal. Only 3 blocks from Rizal street, this place is fine for the price. Bring some incense and you should be alright. And also earplugs becuase the kids wake up early and the room is not completely soundproof.

Cliffside Cottages, El Nido: Bring your ear plugs and a bowl of instant noodles

This place sits on the far west end side of town. Nestled at the base of majestic limestone cliffs, The Cliffside Cottages are a great place to stay for the price. For 500 pesos you get a little cottage, a fan and private bathroom, a front porch and hot water brought to your porch every morning for tea, coffee, or instant oats. I ate my breakfast of instant oats and lunch or dinner of instant noodles to save on money. The staff is wonderful. They are all very sweet and friendly. The only problem was that there is a rooster farm across the street and they start crowing at 4 am. So bring earplugs and you should be fine. Also you only get electricty from 6pm-6am and 12pm-4pm. We stayed at another guest house for 800 pesos a night and got the same deal on electricity.

Lamuro Resort and Spa - Now called El Nido Cove: Personalised Stay - Friendly Service

This hotel calls itself a resort but don't think big and busy, this is a very small resort (only 8 rooms) and it's very quiet and peaceful - we were the only guests in the hotel! It also calls itself a spa but if you want treatments they call in a therapist from town and they're done in your room or under a gazebo on the deck over looking the beach. It's small scale means you're guaranteed a relaxing stay and personalised, friendly service.

When you arrive you enter the main room (spacious, lots of pillars and very high ceilings), which serves as a small bar, reception, gift shop, dining area (when you can't dine on the deck) and lounge area with comfy sofas. At the front of this room the doors open out to the deck which over looks the sea and the islands. On either side of the room a door leads out to the guest rooms (4 on either side).

Each room is split level, with a double bed on each. They have all you expect from a nice resort; a modern bathroom, tv and aircon, the rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. There are chairs outside each room so you can sit out and look out to sea.

The price here includes all meals. There isn't a menu to choose from, every meal is a surprise and is served up on the deck or in the main room. It was always delicious, fresh and nutritious food and there's always too much! (Breakfast was usually toast/eggs/ham/bacon/fruit/pancakes. Lunch was usually fish/meat/rice/veg/fruit. Dinner soup/meat/fish/rice/veg/fruit).

We had a facial and a massage during our stay. As it had been raining we couldn't have them under the gazebo so we had them in our room instead. The therapists were very friendly and professional and the massage in particular was fantastic! It was amazing to lay on the comfy bed having a massage with the double doors open so I could hear the sound of the crashing waves. Pure relaxation! (I fell asleep during the facial!)

The best thing about this hotel is the way that they tailor your stay to your preferences. We'd wake up each day and they'd ask us what we would like to do and when. Our first day it was cloudy and had been raining so they took us into El Nido town and we had our beauty treatments in the afternoon. The next day they took us out island hopping and cooked us a fresh lunch on the beach. On our last night they had a local band come to the hotel and play especially for us!!

Everyone here is very friendly, funny and helpful, the hotel is beautiful and the location is spectacular. You'll have a great stay here!

Legends Hotel: Great Hotel in Puerto Princesa

We picked this hotel because after a very long journey to the island and arriving to heavy rain, we needed to stay somewhere nice! Joseph and Gladys in the tour office we were using said this was one of the best.

The entrance and lobby are particularly nice, you can tell straight away that this is a good hotel, and we were met by very efficient, friendly staff. This hotel has great facilities (pool, gym, business centre, gift shop, sauna, spa, laundry, room service, business centre...) not that we got to use them - our day trips kept us too busy.

The food in the restaurant is delicious, the breakfast buffet is included in the room price and is varied and plentiful, we had room service and had laundry done, both for reasonable prices. The room had 2 double beds and slept 4 adults very comfortably.

The location is central and plenty of tricycles stop outside for those rainy evenings when you don't want to walk!

The doors of the lift close very quickly - be warned or you might miss your floor or worse...

Bayview Lodging house - El Nido: for very low budgets

If you aren't too squeamish and on a very low budget then Bayview is the perfect place for you. The entrance is on Palmera street and the large balcony has a superb view on the bay!! The front rooms are also privileged with the same view. The rooms are large and pleasant and the beds are comfortable. Prices are 250 with shared bathroom and showers. The lady in charge is very nice , she can do your laundry and even cook for you. It's easy to have a quick swim just in front of the hotel. The location is perfect being a few steps to everything. The big balcony is very convenient for your breakfast and for a relaxing beer or a happy chat with other tenants in the evening before or after your outings.
I even arranged to have a relaxing massage in my room!

Mary's Beach Resort

Mary's Beach Resort is at the end of Sabang beach. Its simple huts with or without bathrooms offer a quiet almost private beach, pure jungle surroundings, shady trees with hammocks to dose off reading your book, excellent dishes cooked in a traditional way and balconies to enjoy the magnificent sunsets. Prices come between 350 for singles and 600-700 for two. Negotiate!
Your trip to the next stop by boat can be arranged with the friendly owner who, by the way, is an excellent cook! All the rooms have mosquito nets which are absolutely necessary...!
The distance to the center of the village is not annoying as it's a nice walk on the beautiful beach.
If you arrive by local transport someone will probably be waiting for you to carry your luggage to the resort even if you haven't booked, in case there are vacancies of course.

rover's: with a 'v', not a 'b'

since we were too late to catch the bus to el nido from sabang, we had to spend the night in roxas. no one else i know who has gone to palawan on vacation has stayed in roxas. and when we asked around as to where we should stay, the answer was "robber's". mildly frightening, yes?

it turned out to be rover's pension house. ah. the place was nice enough, in contrast to roxas city, which lonely planet described as "uninspiring." there's a little courtyard in the middle, and though the rooms are painted that terrible default pink-or-green, they were comfortable enough. there are several options, depending on your budget: from the bathroom-sharing kind, to having your own bathroom, cable tv, butler (ok, i was just kidding about the butler) -- but you get the idea. :)

the next-door canteen, tia ver's, offers turo-turo sort of fare. not exactly tasty, i'm afraid, but good enough to tide you over until the next meal.

robert's: nice cottages in sabang

for P450 a cottage, robert's is not a bad place at all! located right on sabang beach, linda (the caretaker) makes a pretty mean banana pancake. the cottages have a small veranda (excellent for taking in the view of the powder-fine, mocha-colored beachfront), as well as your own bathroom. no hot and cold water, naturally, and though the facilities aren't spanking brand new, they're clean and well-kept.

walk a few steps from your cottage, and you can dig your toes into the powdery sabang sand.

Legend Hotel-Palawan: Puerto Princesa

Legenda arranged everything for us then, including airline, full-board meals, accommodations, tours and other transfers. All by phone and thankfully hassle-free. When we got to Puerto Princesa the hotel was very accommodating, the food was great, the rooms clean and trip schedules are orderly.

Though it's still wonderful to try Puerto Princesa's cuisine thru their various restaurants and bars, it's welcome to be lazy here a The Legend. The hotel's restaurant menu offers a variety of fantastic and delicious dishes.

Hotel Fleuris: Nice Surprise from Puerto P

Our 4 Nite stay at Hotel Fleuris was a very pleasant and relaxing stay. Location is very good since it is just a 10 minute walk to the city center where some fast food chains and the local mall is located. The whole staff ( from the front office, resto staff and security guards ) was very friendly and accomodating. They even brought up to our room some salt in the middle of the night at our request. The whole place was very clean and with new furnishings. Rooms were quite big in size. Since there were 4 of us traveling together, they gave us an adjoing room which was an a big plus. The only drawback to hotel fleuris was that I had to shower in very cold water one morning because somehow, everyone in the hotel was using the hot water and it ran out. But overall, I give the hotel 2 big thumbs up!

Seadive Resort: Cheap Place to Stay in Coron

Everything is in the website, very cheap and clean place to stay in Coron town, they can arrange your boat rides and other activities like diving...

They have a nice veranda, please don't expect that this is right on the beach front, this is not like Boracay that has a long beach where you can walk in the sand, you need to rent a boat to go to beach areas here in Coron.

Audissie Pension: Audissie Pension

Auddissie Pension is a sad looking building at night. I can see this overlooking Tribu Cafe from Puerto Pension. It seems sad, although I think one reason is that we went on an off season and there weren't a lot of guests in their hotel.

A very convinient place to stay - if Puerto Pension is fully booked and you wish to stay in the central area, Audisie Pension is a good alternative.

3rd Floor aircon room: Sea Dive Inn: Coron's A-1 Accomodation

I can say that my brief 2 day & 1 night stay in this Busuanga Seadive resort is fantastic. It has has an experienced staff with local dive masters who are living on the site with the support of their state-of-the-art diving equipments. Wide fine dining options of "fresh caught" local seafoods, Chinese dimsums, American burgers and french fries, Indian curries, beer, smoothies, and healthy desserts. You can enjoy all of these while watching native boats coming into the harbor. You can also rest on its comfortable rooms with refreshing hot showers. The only bad point here is they don't include the tax on the charges as reflected on the display boards and the airconditioning in my room is not so cool. Also souvenirs are unattractive.

The most important & I can say the best feature of this Inn is the friendliness of its staff from the receptionist to the cook. Their warmth and special treatment extended makes you feel the need for you to stay longer and wish you wanna live here forever.
